The National Weather Service in Galveston has issued a small craft advisory in effect until 10 a.m. Wednesday for Galveston and coastal waters. Inexperienced boaters should stay on land. On Tuesday afternoon, winds were strong and gusty with rough seas for pier fishing, Galveston beach visitors and boating in the Gulf of Mexico. Beach visitors mostly stayed onshore near lifeguards and enjoyed the sunny, warm temperatures in the mid-80’s and noticed the humidity in the brisk breezes.
Galveston visitors also headed to the Strand and the Port of Galveston where there are restaurants, gift shops, boat tours, cruise ships and offshore oil rigs undergoing maintenance.
